This is the third published volume of Fantagraphics' Complete Barks series. It will be the 11th volume of the completed (30 volume) series. Here's my (possibly slightly rambling) assessment of the goods:

If there were any weak spots in the magnificent first published volume in this series (Walt Disney's Donald Duck: Lost in the Andes (The Complete Carl Barks Disney Library)), then it was surely the two included Christmas-stories, which were somewhat below the high water mark set by Barks in his 'golden' period. However, Barks DID produce a fair amount of memorable Christmas-stories - it possibly helped that Barks view of Christmas was a actually little bit cynical - Barks' seasonal stories tended to be well-balanced and not too saccharine.

In this volume we get the title story "A Christmas for Shacktown" which may very well be the best Christmas story Barks ever made. It's just wonderful, from his use of Dickensian kids in Duckburg's poor quarter, to the haunting big black hole in the ground that swallows all Scrooge's money.... This story is a real seasonal classic!

This volume features the stories published immediately prior to the stories in Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge: Only A Poor Old Man (Complete Carl Barks Disney Library). If you're mainly in it for the Scrooge-character, then you still need this book - even though it mainly focuses on Donald and the Nephews, it still features some all time classic Scrooge moments, including the first appearance of his famous Money Bin.

The later long Uncle Scrooge adventure stories are famous, and I can understand why.

4.0 out of 5 stars Barks is great 13 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The stories are obviously fantastic, the quality of the paper however is not, very close to newspaper quality, not white and if you hold the book in one hand closed, you can see the paper waves ( not straight). But I probably end up buying them anyway, all of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable 7 Nov 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I read these as a child, and I really enjoyed reading them again. Carl Barks and Hergé shared the ability to describe the world, whitout even travelling themselves. Both stand the test of time.
